Alright. Last week’s proclamation was obviously premature. I’d managed to be on a decent schedule for a lot of January, but Feb and now March are kind of a mess. My sleep schedule is all over the place and I feel scattered and unfocused, but with a billion things to do. My business future is uncertain, but far from failing. My blog discipline wavering, but far from absent. My home is full of clutter, but what I need is still within reach.

I guess with my “first real work project” not ending the way I would have liked, my future has felt a lot more uncertain and I’ve let myself drift because fighting the current felt too much like drowning. But, after making a few critic decisions about the future, I seem to be settling down. My attendance at this year’s PAX East is about 80% confirmed. Rick and I opted to stay another year in our current apartment, so I feel like I can start reorganization/improvement projects like my desk area and the bedroom. My work space hasn’t felt “right” in a while and its definitely made focusing more difficult.

This weekend will be spent searching Rick’s parents’ place for his old Master System console for a super secret project I’m hoping to debut next month, putting the finishing touches on my revamped desk area, and attending a screening of The Room. What are you kids going get up to?

    That print is AMAZEBALLS! Love it!!

    I’ve been sooo scatter brained for the past few weeks. I’m digging pretty deep to make myself stick to some sort of schedule. :/

    Anyhoo, I’m going to ECC next weekend and I’m stoked on that!! But that means I probably won’t post next week, unless I really get myself together and get something done early in the week.

    Ahh I hope things fall more into place for you – I like to think that sometimes things don’t work out as planned because there is an even bigger more exciting plan waiting in the wings 🙂 On a sidenote how funny is that PewDiePie guy, lol, I can see why he has so many fans!

    Goodluck 🙂

    Dang…The Troy McLure game was kind of hard. I need to go back and watch more of The Simpsons!

    Interviewly?! My life has been changed!

    I just sold my Pax tickets to a friend. It’s not in the cards for me this year. Have a good weekend!
